Jon-Paul Brampton powered by eXp presents this extraordinary Lakeside home. Situated within a 10 acre plot this unique home offers equestrian facilities and unrivalled privacy in this peaceful Buckinghamshire hamlet setting.
Located off a quiet country lane in the hamlet of Marsh, this unique home really needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. Electric wooden gates allow access onto a sweeping driveway draped in Willow. The approach slowly unveils the home and its spectacular position on the edge of a wildlife filled lake.
The current owners have been in residence for over 20 years and in the time have completely reconstructed the original dwelling. An oak framed portico provides a dramatic entrance to the home and what lies within. The layout throughout has been cleverly centred around the outlook; a triple aspect living room with sold oak flooring spans the depth of the house and boasts two sets of French doors, one to take in the breathtaking views of the Lake, the other to appreciate the formal gardens. To the other flank of the property is a sensational open aspect Kitchen, incorporating both dining and living zones. The views here are jaw-dropping with the Lake and its leafy backdrop taking centre stage. There are again French doors which offer access out onto a deck that runs around the perimeter of the property. Here there is the truly unique ability for al fresco dining or to simply sit and enjoy the wildlife the Lake brings and enjoy the colours of the changing seasons.
The property is currently arranged with three bedrooms upstairs and one located downstairs. All bedrooms are generous and boast individual ensuite bathroom facilities. Perhaps as one would expect the best is saved for the main bedroom, a generous suite with dressing area and stunning four piece ensuite with freestanding bath. French doors offer access onto a large balcony over looking the lake and offer a wonderful vantage point to survey the plot beyond.
The plot itself comprises approximately 10 acres in total. The Lake clearly takes centre stage, encompassed by variety of trees and shrubbery and containing not one, but two islands. In places the depth of the water is up to 16 feet and is currently home to host of Carp. To one side is more formal lawn and gardens to the other is the garaging, stable block and paddocks. Accessed via a stunning covered walkway draped in vines, there is a large area for additional parking and space for a variety of outbuildings. A large open stable block opens on to a number of defined paddocks, ideal for those keeping horses. There is also separate access here should a buyer wish to develop this aspect further. The grounds are truly stunning with the Chiltern Hills offering a picturesque backdrop to the plot, something few properties can offer.
The property also offers development or investment potential as currently there is planning permission to construct a three bedroom detached single level dwelling within the grounds (application reference - 21/06159/FUL see buckinghamshire.gov.uk). This offers the potential to build and sell on as a separate dwelling or a way of incorporating other families members within the plot. There are many possibilities here.
The location offers the best of both worlds. Marsh is a small hamlet with a scattering of homes and farms situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hils an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hamlet is approximately 5 miles from both the market towns of Aylesbury and Princes Risborough which both offer regular and easy access into London. The opportunity for a truly unique lifestyle is on offer here, why not come and have a look. Please quote reference JB0294.
